Last week's haikus started off as a project in doodling-a-day. However, with Thanksgiving celebrations I got behind and fell back on my rubber stamp, embossing, inking and watercolors. The black band was simply for Black Friday...which ended up being a day of rest for me. The reason I wanted to just doodle is I am a teacher during the week. My students are always doodling. I remember doing the same in the margins of my papers. Its a free way to just let the pen flow without expectation. As I want to free up my practice of so many expectations I have put on myself in the past, the doodling I hope will be a great exercise in setting my creative soul free. Let loose the wild child.
